The Walking Dead creator has revisited the franchise following the announcement of Star Wars Episode 7.
"Full disclosure: I've been obsessed with Star Wars since the Disney announcement. I've been reading every rumour, I can't get enough," he wrote on Twitter.
"It got me to watch A New Hope with my son again, and he loves Star Wars now. He was too young last time I tried. Now he's hooked.
"We're watching Clone Wars on Cartoon Network right now, he loves that too. Later today, Empire Strikes Back. He has no clue Darth [Vader] is Anakin.
"I'm shocked I haven't heard Genndy Tartakovsky come up in the director speculation. His Clone Wars cartoons were awesome. He'd be great!"
The speculation surrounding the director of 2015's Star Wars Episode 7 has continued to mount, with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird most recently denying that he is in the running for the film.
